The first phase of development at Albion Gateway has been given the go-ahead by planners at East Staffordshire Borough Council, bringing good news to Burton-on-Trent’s employment market in 2015.
A high level of interest is already being registered for the 34,000 sq ft warehouse and trade counter scheme, which is being developed by the UK’s leading regeneration specialist, St. Modwen.
Work is due to begin next month on the 11 units, which range from 2,500 sq ft to 4,600 sq ft, and accompanying highway improvements, creating up to 60 jobs. Expected to open for business in September, the scheme could then generate a further 80 jobs in a variety of industries.
The 10 acre mixed-use project is replacing part of the former Pirelli tyre factory with a mixture of warehouse, trade counter, industrial units, restaurants, a public house and a hotel.
Ian Romano, Senior Development Surveyor at St. Modwen, said: “We have received very positive feedback for our plans for Albion Gateway, with high demand from national and local trade counter and warehouse occupiers.”
Located on the main arterial route to the north east of Burton-on-Trent’s town centre, the scheme benefits from its close proximity to major transport links, including the A38 and A50. St. Modwen is investing in the local road infrastructure, which will include two new dedicated junctions to the scheme as well as local highway improvements on the Derby Road. It is within easy reach of Burton-on-Trent train station and is close to all local amenities.
